Hiking 3:30:00 [3] 12.9 km (16:17 / km)

Strong Machine Dev Squad hike with Nick on a bluebird day at Pawtuckaway. Views to Boston from the North and South summits. Talked about AR training and race prep, and pulled out the topo a few times to double-check our location.

Road Biking 1:45:00 [3] 23.0 mi (4:34 / mi)

Woods are still holding just enough moisture and ice, and there's more sloppy stuff on the way tonight. So, I set out on what actually might be my first ever self-initiated solo ride on pavement, at least since "the Huffy encounter" (with a car windshield) back in high school. It was actually quite pleasant, I discovered that there are all sorts of back roads with all sorts of apple orchards that I didn't know about right up the road, and no windshields were harmed on the ride.

Trail Running w/ Jess 57:00 [3] 6.9 km (8:16 / km)

Another dreary day, with 40 degree fog and morning drizzle. Went for a dog-assisted trail run. Trails were a mix of wet ground and wet ice. Jess seems to be getting the idea and pulled hard through the pond-side singletrack. Took some breaks when we hit the icy sections, and later after a red squirrel dashed across right in front of us. Jess did a good job of leaving it after my frantic "whoa, wait, no, stop!"

Hiking 6:00:00 [3] 8.0 mi (45:00 / mi) +1000m 32:25 / mi

Lead an AMC group up Mt Moosilauke. We rescheduled to today due to yesterday's -36 degree windchill. We certainly got the better conditions - cold, calm, and blue skies on the way up, a packed trail with enough loose snow for easy snowshoeing, great visibility from the summit, and enough wind to give a true alpine experience. The group butt-sledded our way down in record time. I've never seen sledding conditions quite like that. We probably did 1000 vertical feet of sledding on the descent. I had a very big grin and a very soggy bottom for the ride home.
